Clash of the Not Titans
According to this story in the Daytona Beach News-Journal, yesterday marked the first "debate" between the candidates for mayor of Daytona Beach in this fall's election. Candidates are city commisioners Mike Shallow and Yvonne Scarlett-Golden and former city administrator Tom McClelland. Highlights follow:
Scarlett-Golden and Shallow said they want to search for a new city manager when Richard Quigley reaches his projected retirement date next April."World-class." Riiiiiiight. With a world-class educational system in Volusia County, too, heh?
All three candidates supported efforts to combat prostitution, but debate on this subject hit a low point.That's what makes us a world class city, Commissioner Shallow. It's our bee-yoo-tii-ful hookers!
At least we can be thankful that current mayor and all-around bozo Baron H. "Bud" Asher isn't running or can't run for re-election.
